Norwegian Mountains, Møre og Romsdal
Weather & dogs, Godøya, Mar 17 2008
Back to the Storhornet main page.
Åsmund called and ..
suggested that we could walk our dogs somewhere. I suggested Storhornet on Godøya, still delirious from numerous excellent moments during my past two years up here. As he hadn't been up there lately, he concurred. We drove to Gjuv and followed the regular path up to Storhornet.
The weather ..
was as complex as it has been all winter. A hailshower was taking its turn on the summit when we left the trailhead. I had a hope that we would arrive at the summit after it had passed. By the time we reached the trail junction by Alnesvatnet, the shower left Storhornet summit.
Blessed with blue sky and shiny white (and black) clouds, we took our time up the ridge. Ronja has a deep affection for snowballs, and Troll just tried to survive. Both from the snow depth and from this large dog which couldn't stop teasing him.
As we gained ground on..
Storhornet, it began snowing. I tried to upgrade it to hail, but Åsmund protested. It wasn't until we descended that Åsmund agreed to testify that we had been through a decent hailshower. Thank God.. I was beginning to wonder if summer was here already.
This was my fourth trip report in 10 days. All ones for the memory lane. I expect the next one will be from Kjerringtindane. Stay tuned..
